With this hands is better to just limp,maybe you can raise with these in late position or vs a blind,in other way there are not worth of the risk of put more money in the pot with this.After the flop is better to try to flop a monster or give up the hand,if you can check and get another card good.

If u are with a good stack a raise is not a bad play.

Maybe. In my opinion I think is better if you have a good stack.
If you are short is better shove these hands, lower than 10 bb in a turbo tournament.
The cause of that is the fact of you can get an triple hand, if the flop dont help you just fold your hand without problems.

The lower pairs surely are not the desire of the players, but if you are playing correctly and pay attention, these low pair can be winners

this is an instance where cold calling a small raise can be correct but do not call a 3 bet. open raise
